I am surprised and honored to be part of a group of wonderful women that have joined forces to help children.

I do hope that everyone is enjoying there day - I had breakfast made by my beautiful children and am getting ready to go to work :hug:

I think I will wear my birthday project t-shirt and take my lunch in my tote bag -- just so that I can draw more attention to the cause...the more the merrier.

What a wonderful way to start Mother's Day!! This has touched me so deeply that, yes, there are tears! I am so proud of everyone at the Zone. I feel truly blessed to have found this place. To think that Johnny knows about this wonderful project is the best gift we could possibly get today! (Besides the thoughtful gifts of our own children, of course!!)

Love and happiness to all on this beautiful Mother's Day. My thoughts are with everyone. :cloud9: :heart2:

You never know when one little gesture (such as Johnny wearig the hospice bracelet) can create a ripple which becomes a river of kindness and generosity. Way to go Zoners! Happy Mothers Day to all! :flashingheart:

I can't imagine the emptiness that some Mother's are feeling today. :pray: & :chill:

:flashingheart: It's a good feeling knowing that our donations have helped some of the families at Children's Hospice. Bless Johnny for having put on Dustin's bracelet, it brought extra attention to such a worth while cause.


It must be very difficult for those moms. I can't even imagine. But I feel very lucky on this Mother's Day, and very proud to be a Zoner. This is great news! :snoopydances:

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Every single day I count my blessings that I have a healthy child. To know that other Mother's are in such pain makes me realize just how lucky those of that have healthy children really are.
This letter and the BD project also brings to mind just how much Johnny and his life moves us. How he speaks volumes to us in his actions. He leaves an imprint on our everyday lives and to know that he is aware of that is a wonderful feeling. He really is the best role model any one can follow and I am proud that we learn from his example.
I also feel blessed everytime I sign on here in The Zone. To know that I am sitting here at my computer, connected to so many wonderful, caring and devoted women brings on a feeling of love, happiness and pride.
Thanks.... :grouphug:
To all the Mothers here in The Zone HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
To all the daughters here in The Zone....give your Mom a great big hug..she will appreciate it!

What beautiful sentiments, ibbi-- :thanks!: --thank you for sharing them, and thank you for your design. We are all very proud of Romy, and of ACK's daughter Laura who also contributed a design. That's something beautiful to remember on Mother's Day . . . how Johnny and the Birthday Project bring mothers and daughters together.

Thank you for sharing that with us. It brought tears to my eyes as well. I am happy to know that he is moved by our choice of projects - it seems that aside from aiding a worthwhile cause, we really are giving him a birthday gift.

Again I want to thank everyone who brought this project, and the cafe, into fruition. The generosity of this community just overwhelms me sometimes.

To all the Mothers here in The Zone HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
To all the daughters here in The Zone....give your Mom a great big hug..she will appreciate it!

I echo your thoughts, Johnnybloom:
As I am sitting here with my mothers' day bracelet (with shiny hearts on it) from my daughter side by side on my arm with my "Today is a gift" bracelet I was having similar thoughts: lucky to have a healthy daughter: today in particular my heart goes out to mothers who have lost a child or are nursing a sick one.
I was also thinking how lucky I am to be part of such a great community - the JDZ - through which I am getting to know some wonderful, thoughtful and caring ladies in honour of, and thanks to, a wonderful, thoughtful and caring man.

To read this at the end of of a difficult day ( but still a good day), brought tears to my eyes. Not because Johnny knows about the project (nice, but not real important), but that with this project we help other parents and children have it a little easier at hard times.
Thanks PTP for giving this message and the others for making this project possible. San
